Private schools can charge 70% tuition fee for online classes: Rajasthan HC

December 19, 2020
The Rajasthan government had earlier deferred the collection of school fees for 3 months by private schools, which was extended till the opening of the schools. It was also stated that no student’s name shall not be struck off from online classes for non-payment of school fees.
On December 18, a division bench of the Rajasthan High Court passed an order allowing private schools offering online classes during the coronavirus pandemic to charge 70 percent of tuition fee. Meanwhile, the state board schools can charge 60 percent of last year’s tuition fees in lieu of online coaching provided by them. After the schools reopen, they can charge fees as per the syllabus fixed by their education boards.
The judgment was delivered by the bench headed by the Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty.
Earlier in an interim order in October, the HC had allowed private schools to charge 70 percent of their tuition fee. The state government too had formed a committee to look into the issue after the interim order.
The panel had suggested that additional fee can be charged if education boards ask schools to complete additional syllabus after the pandemic is over.
